Another half-dolphin. The kz1000r-S1 is the holy grail of KZ’s. So, even a S1 replica is badass as shit. Love it. head was ported by Larry Cavanaugh like mine. has webcam 110 like mine. 1100cc Curious to see what it’ll sell for. Obvious difference I see is it doesn’t have dual plug / dual coil […]
Just got the new issue of cycle world. Has some good zrx stuff in it. Should prob hold onto mine.
Our friend George sent over another vintage Z1 article. It’s the same year and color scheme as mine. From George; “I wanted to wish you and the clan a happy New Year. I ran across this Z1 article (Big Bike September 1974) and though Ed might a copy of it. It’s a pretty basic stock […]
George is one of our buddies who comes out on Thursday rides periodically. He sent over this article from an old Cycle Guide mag. Denco was an old performance company. They list the mods they made to their z1. Fuck the z1 and kz’s are the best. I did a Kelly loop on mine last […]
Prices were all over the place. Total junk barely rolling with half the engine missing, selling for $2000. Nuts. Then there is the super clean 2nd year with the bassani exhaust, the dude said he sold for $3500, but I think he lied to me, he was a dick. Then the dude I bought a […]
The 73-75 z1 has the coolest color schemes. Droooooolllll… My z1 is a 74, but for some reason the dude I got it from had tank and tail from 75 on it. I’m gonna get my shit repainted back to 74 colors. So, either: green with yellow stripes or maroon-brown with orange stripes. I can’t […]
Back story: I’ve always liked fast cars. Shit, I worked 2 jobs all summer when I was 18 so I could afford to put an Acura integra motor into a Honda crx. I was a janitor during the day, ha, and worked at a gas station at night. Crx was fast as shit and I […]
So sick… I think the z1 / kz900 / kz1000 has become my favorite cycle. For a crappy old 70’s bike… man they can make some power. Pics are from here: http://elcorramotors.blogspot.com
Mostly z1’s, kz900 and kz1000s. A couple Honda and Suzuki in there. Pics are shitty low res. whatever. Pretty cool to see how they set certain things up. I recently added a lockhart oil cooler to my z1 and set it up in the normal spot above the headers and ran the lines over the […]

We rode up to Rickets Glen, PA this past weekend. Good blend of twisty roads, sharp friends, unreliable vintage bikes, smooth whiskey, frigid mornings, and junk food. View the photos from the Fall 2011 Camping Trip on “I Like The Weekend”.
